Ms. Robbins discussed her book Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, The Ivy League, and the Hidden Paths of Power, published by Little, Brown and Company. Founded in the nineteenth century, the Order of Skull and Bones secretly recruits a small number of Yale juniors for membership each year. The members, known as “bonesmen,” are sworn to secrecy about the activities, power and scope of the society. "Bonesmen" include President George W. Bush, his father George H. W. Bush, U.S. Senators, CIA officials, cabinet members, and numerous heads of major international corporations. Ms. Robbins interviewed 100 “bonesmen” for information about the secret initiation rites and the organization’s influence on world affairs. close
